E.ON

Discover if E.ON energy tariffs are right for your home. Compare gas and electricity prices with Energylinx[1]

E.ON is an electricity and gas provider and one of the UK's biggest energy suppliers

E.ON launched through a merger of VEBA and VIAG in 2000. The company acquired Powergen in the UK in 2002. It also owns the majority share of npower.

It used to be one of the 'big six' energy suppliers, but since its acquisition of npower and other changes in the market, this group is now known as the 'large legacy' suppliers.

Sustainable energy is important to E.ON. The supplier now provides all its customers’ homes with 100% renewable electricity. Every tariff benefits from this.

E.ON scored 31st out of 34 suppliers, according to Citizens Advice[2]

How will E.ON bill me?

The easiest way to pay for your fixed-rate or variable tariff is by Direct Debit. If you pay this way, you'll see a reduction in your standing charges and unit rates.

A fixed monthly Direct Debit spreads the cost of energy over the year. You’ll be billed each month with prices based on how much energy you used in the last 12 months. A variable Direct Debit means you pay for the exact amount of energy used after getting your bill.

How to contact E.ON

There are different numbers to call depending on your tariff. You can also talk to an advisor via live chat.

Switching to E.ON

When you’ve found your tariff, E.ON will contact your current supplier to kick off the switching process. E.ON will be in touch within a few days to confirm the switch. They then ask for your first meter readings and you’ll get a welcome pack containing tariff details. E.ON offers the Energy Switch Guarantee. This promises a simple, safe and quick switch from one supplier to another.

Just make sure you shop around and compare tariffs before switching. You could save money with a different supplier.
